PERFORMING ARTS PROGRAM
Students in Prep, Year 2 and Year 3 will attend Performing Arts classes during Term 1 and 2 this year. All other year levels will do Visual Arts until we swap at the beginning of Term 3.
The major focus for Term 1 across all classes is Drama curriculum. We will explore ways of successfully interacting with others through games and activities that include a range of social skills and are appropriate to individual year levels and groups. We’ll move our focus to Music in Term 2.
Prep Drama students will participate in activities that include imaginative play, acting and playing games together in a friendly manner, while focusing on the core values of kindness, friendliness and co-operation.
Year 2 Drama students will practice working co-operatively with other class members through games designed to promote trust and responsibility. Dialogue will become a tool for communicating emotion, as they experiment with scenes from picture storybooks.
Year 3 Drama students will participate in games designed to promote successful interaction with people outside their immediate friendship groups. They will explore methods of silent communication, and participate in a range of improvisation activities.
